East Croydon Station Upgrade Impact on Commercial Property

Published: 02/06/2020

Network Rail have released Proposals for an Upgraded Brighton Main Line and East Croydon Station 

Network Rail are consulting on major proposals to unblock the Croydon bottleneck to provide Brighton Main Line passengers with more reliable, more frequent and faster services, and to provide the capacity needed for future growth.  


The Croydon area is the busiest, most congested and most complex part of the country’s rail network. The lack of capacity at East Croydon station and the complex series of junctions north of Croydon, the Selhurst triangle, delays trains across the Brighton Main Line and the wider network every time an incident occurs.

East Croydon Station Current Constraints

The station currently has six platforms which means that incoming trains often have to queue outside the station for a platform to become available, resulting in delays.

Accessibility at the station is limited as the existing access ramps are steep and congested, the small concourse regularly becomes overcrowded and passenger facilities are limited.

Network Rails Proposals for East Croydon Station

A rebuilt station with two additional platforms, a larger concourse with improved facilities for passengers and better connections with the town centre and other transport links, supporting the ongoing regeneration of Croydon.

More detailed information can be seen on the Network Rail Link below.


Public Consultation runs until Sunday 20 September 2020

In our considered opinion Network Rail's Proposal will only have a positive impact on the commercial property market in Croydon and the surrounding area.
